Omg really really sad for Masha . My condolences to her family

Terrible news about Maria's father passing away yesterday. My thoughts and prayers are with Masha and her family. She's so young to be going through this and facing this now. How awful. Thankfully he got to see his daughter become an elite figure skater and skate in the Olympics and World championships.

Oh, that‘s so sad. Poor Masha. I wish her and her family all the strength and support to go through this terrible time together. My heart goes out to them.

Masha is answering a lot of questions on her ig stories, any idea what the ones in russian are saying? https://www.instagram.com/m_a_r_i_y_/

It's good that she's doing that. It seems like Maria is getting back to her normal life and career routine after her father's tragic passing. I'm glad she's answering these questions although I'm not thrilled about her as a figure skater with tremendous workout routine and tough training only having a thousand calories a day as a woman almost five feet nine inches tall and probably about 125 lbs. Masha proves that not all figure skaters are 80 to 90 lbs and under 5 feet tall. But we have to be honest figure skating is a risk and reward business. Masha is taking all the risks and they are leading to rewards for her career. Being number eight in the Olympics is very good and being on the worlds team is very good as well. She is known and unique being so tall and elegant she can do high-paying figure skating shows for years to come after her competitive career is over. She may never get back to top three or four Russian ladies but the main thing is for her to enjoy the rest of her competitive career and skate well and most importantly enjoy everything.
